Book in a Bag Winners

Thanks to all the designers for their wonderful Orchid Affair tote bags! While there was no bag without its partisans, a few clear winners emerged from the pack.

In third place, with sixty-one votes, we have #11, created by Laura:

“(Laura) Grey is the new black. Selwick Spy School of 1803.”

In second place, with seventy-eight votes, #1, by Nancy, had its own cult following:

“Spies… don’t scare me./ I teach kids.”

The landslide winner, with a whopping one hundred and twenty-three votes, was #12, by Molly:

“Patience is only a virtue when there is something worth waiting for.”

From among the judges, the winner is… Katherine! (Of #150.)

Congrats, all! If you email me with your snail mail addresses, I’ll send you your book in your bag!

Only three more days until Orchid!

p.s. for those who wish to purchase the winning bags, I’ve linked them to their Cafe Press sites. Just click on the picture. If you’re interested in the other bags, just let me know in the comments section below and I’ll try to get those linked up, too.

    Congratulations winners!! They are fabulous designs.
    I hope they are added to the Pink Store, along with the t-shirts from a few months ago.

    Congrats winners! I really love #11, but the other winners are quite clever, too!

    Love these three, but I think #1 has a typo for your last name, Lauren. (It says “Willigs” ..? when I clicked on it)
